JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Old Canton Road flyover bridge will be closed until further notice, according to the Mississippi State Department of Transportation.

MDOT crews discovered a small hole in the shoulder of the bridge and performed a bridge inspection using ground-penetrating radar.

Once a permanent solution is found, MDOT says the bridge will re-open. Until then, motorists will have to seek an alternate route.

The southbound bridge runs from Old Canton Road to Meadowbrook Road in North Jackson.
